MediaTek unveiled the Dimensity 9300, its latest flagship chipset with an All Big Core CPU design. It combines extreme performance with power efficiency to deliver unmatched user experiences in gaming, video capture, and on-device generative AI processing.
“The Dimensity 9300 is MediaTek’s most powerful flagship chip yet, bringing a huge boost in raw computing power to flagship smartphones with our groundbreaking All Big Core design. This unique architecture, combined with our upgraded on-chip AI Processing Unit, will usher in a new era of generative AI applications as developers push the limits with edge AI and hybrid AI computing capabilities.”

MediaTek Dimensity 9300
The MediaTek Dimensity 9300 is built on the third-generation TSMC 4nm process with four Arm Cortex-X4 cores clocked at up to 3.25GHz and four Cortex-A720 cores that can be run at up to 2.0GHz.
The next-generation flagship chipset has an APU 790 AI processor integrated and it is designed to improve generative AI performance and energy efficiency for faster and more secure edge computing. The AI processor is said to be 8 times faster than its predecessor.
The company has also developed mixed-precision INT4 quantization technology which combined with the NeuroPilot memory hardware compression, can more efficiently utilize memory bandwidth and significantly reduce memory requirements.
The chipset is also equipped with the latest flagship GPU – the Immortalis-G720. This is said to deliver a 46% boost in GPU performance with the same level of power consumption as the Dimensity 9200. By combining the chipset’s extreme octa-core CPU design with MediaTek’s second-generation hardware raytracing engine, smartphones powered by the 9300 will deliver console-level global illumination effects at 60 fps.
The 9300 also combines a low-power AI-ISP and always-on HDR up to 4K resolution at 60 fps. The chipset also supports 4K at 30 fps cinematic mode with real-time bokeh tracking and 4K AI Noise Reduction (AI-NR) and AI processing on RAW photos and videos. It will also support the new Ultra HDR format in Android 14.
Other highlights include:
- Support for displays up to WQHD at 180Hz and 4K up to 120Hz
- Wi-Fi 7 speeds up to 6.5 Gbps
- MediaTek Xtra Range
- 5G R16 modem – support for 4CC-CA Sub-6Hz and 8CC-CA mmWave
- LPDDR5T 9600Mbps memory
MediaTek has confirmed that the first devices powered by the Dimensity 9300 will be available in the market by the end of 2023.
